VQ: The Path to Smarter, Bigger Impact
Rethinking Volunteer Recognition
Thursday, March 8, 2018 2pm Eastern – 60 minutes Free Most nonprofits recognize volunteers for their contributions in a number of ways, yet, research shows that there is a disconnect between what volunteers are seeking in terms of recognition and what organizations actually are providing. With National Volunteer Week right around the corner (April 15-22, 2018), it’s a great time to rethink recognition and consider how organizations can align recognition efforts more closely with what actually motivates volunteers. In this webinar, we will explore not only how to make the most of National Volunteer Week, but also how to strategically plan your organization’s recognition efforts in affordable and effective ways. We will share research on recognition, explore brief case studies, and provide tips to help you create a recognition plan and a culture of appreciation. Presented in partnership with Verified Volunteers.
